Josh and I started our NHS dental practice in Harley Street in 1957 when I was still a medical student. We looked after each others’ teeth but now we’ve both retired I have my teeth looked after at a colleague’s practice .
I’ve had the same great hygienist, Norah, for 14 years and thanks to her have kept my teeth in reasonable state to the great age of 84. I’ve outgrown dental decay – only two fillings in 20 years.
Of course being given free samples of toothpaste to take on trips abroad always helps.
